If you have ever thought about reading your Bible, you’ve probably discovered the YouVersion Bible App for your phone. If you haven't yet, you should go ahead and downloard it. It’s a fantastic resource with countless Bible translations and Bible reading plans.
When people start reading the Bible two of the most common questions people ask are:
1. I want to read the Bible, but where do I start?
2. I found the reading plans on YouVersion, but how do I know which ones are good?
So I thought I would put something together to help.
First of all, there are really four types of YouVersion Reading Plans:
Bible Book Plans – This allows you to read through the scripture, book by book, or all the way through in a set period of time.
Book Based Plans – These are plans that are written around a particular book and are written by the author of the book. They also include scripture.
Topical Plans – These allow you to read scripture on a particular topic and then read a devotional commentary written about the scripture.
Seasonal Plans – These are plans created around particular seasons in the calendar like Easter or Christmas.
How do you know which plans are good to start with? That’s a great question. Here are a few that might interest you.
